Our Services

The Canberra Psychology Centre for Children and Families (CPCCF) is an established and well regarded private psychology practice providing best practice in assessment and therapy. We provide psychological services from the antenatal period through all levels of child and adolescent development – to young adulthood. We also provide therapy to parents, families and adults.

Director, Jo Richardson, is a Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years of experience in working with children and families. Jo co-created CPCCF with the vision of providing the Canberra community with a dedicated Centre for excellence in child and family psychological services.

Our team is comprised of a range of experienced male and female Registered and Clinical psychologists, all with differing areas of expertise and specialisation. Our team work closely together to ensure the provision of the highest standard evidence based psychological services.

We provide a comprehensive range of assessment, diagnostic and therapy services. All of our services are provided using evidence based best practice approaches and gold standard measures. We also assist families to access school and government funded programs.

The Centre has developed a strong reputation within Canberra and surrounding areas – within the general Canberra community, with clients, within the medical community, with schools, and with the allied health professionals that we work collaboratively with.

CPCCF provides assessment and therapy services to the Canberra community and surrounding areas (including Goulburn, Bateman’s Bay and the south coast of NSW, the Snowy Mountains Area, Jindabyne, Cooma, Bombala and Yass).

We believe that standalone buildings with spacious therapy rooms, located in easily accessible private and peaceful settings, with ample parking, are ideal for the services we provide.

Our Acton office is set on a large private block on the West Basin foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin (close to the National Museum of Australia). Major arterial roads provide easy access to this location, with plenty of parking available directly across from the office.

Our North Belconnen office is set high on a hill in a quiet location that borders Flynn and Fraser. This building has disabled facilities. Major arterial roads provide easy access to this location and we have ample private parking on site, and free parking adjacent.
